Look at me in the bottom right corner doing my thAng lol (photo edited)
For this week's Style Me Friday, its all about Peplum. Its a very versatile trend that I was not into at all when it first surfaced. (Truth be told, im still not that into it). With that said though, it is very easy to wear and could give the illusion of a itty bitty waist. Oh yeahhh!
I wore my Peplum top from Danice with my Charlotte Russe skirt, random belt from a blouse and heels from Strawberry. The belt really brought the look together, especially with the tassels!
What is your go to piece to pair with a peplum top?

The guy and I went to see 'The Man of Steel'. Yo, I bin asking about this movie since last summer lol It did not disappoint; I love the way they re made it!
Well, we also had pizza at a nice restaurant called Vapiano around the corner from the theater. I was impressed with the decor of the place and unique pay system they have (everyone gets a card, swipe when you order & pay at checkout). We didn't hang out long enough for me to give a full review. Maybe next time.
My ' Endless Nights' tank is from H&M (luv), jeans from Know Style, Strawberry flats and MK bag. My hair was from a flat twist out that went wrong in the rain. Did you noticed I got a hair cut?!! (will talk about it more in later post)
Did I mention that movie season is back?! I'm so happy that the Guy likes movie time as much as I do. We even rate the ones we see together. Cheesy? Ya, whatever!! :)
Any who, we went to see After Earth with Will and Jaden Smith. I try to watch every Will Smith movie (I Am Legend was my favorite) so I was all in with this movie choice. It was given very poor reviews, but I usually don't take those to heart. It was actually a pretty good flick!
My Sangria before the movie was Ok. Not a big fan
I wore my hair blown out (from flat twist out), Top from Danice, jeans ( my favorite, you know that by now right?) from Weekend, De Janeiro flats and bag from Unique(a flea market type store in queens). Lippie? 'Moody Blue' by NickaK
We had a late start so I had to take night pics...Ya, not the best
The money sucking machine aka metro card machine lol
I blame Ms Vaughn for this!! lol Check out her video here to see how pretty her blow out is.
A couple months ago I told myself " no more heat"... well I lied *sigh* I love the length I get when my hair is stretched, but I have to wait two days after my wash to achieve a fully stretch look, so out came the blow dryer.
1. My hair was washed and conditioned...I also deep conditioned for an hour. I detangled with my regular leave in conditioner of the moment (Cantu Shea Butter leave in)
2. I applied the treseme heat protectant to my hair section by section and blow dried tension method (as seen in Ms Vaughn's video)
3. Lastly I applied some Olive Oil to the hair and twisted (mainly to keep the finished sections out of the way)
The results :)
Day of ~ before the flat twists
The next day~ post flat twists :) 2nd day
Best blow out results since I've bin loose natural (I always say loose
natural because I had locs before, which is also a natural state of my hair~no chemicals so
please excuse me. I also opt to say post locs
I need to get me some Argan oil to keep my hair glossy and smelling good!
Like the look? (sry pics are a bit blur)

Thursday was 90 degrees in NY. Oh Happy Day!! I loved it :D
I went to the movies with my cousin for her birthday to watch The Hangover pt 3 . The first one was bomb dot com funny, the second one not so much, but they definitely redeem themselves with part three. It was funnay! As a last minute decision, we also saw Fast and the Furious 6. SUPER action packed, so if you like those kinda things (hott men driving fast cars and kicking ass) go see it! *wink*
I wore floral shorts (really a romper that I tucked in) from Danice, top from Rainbow, gifted bag and flats from Vim. My hair is a flat twist-out & flexi rod set (confusing, I know), lips ''snob' by mac and nails 'Caribbean' by Ruby kisses
